I noticed last night that Netflix also has "Grateful Dawg" and "The End of the Road" available for instant view

End of the Road is awful . Grateful Dawg is heartfelt and well done . I love their take of Jimmy Cliffs' and Guillermo Brights' , Sitting Here in Limbo ( hey rob , is that double possesive correct ? )

There is a Ton of jazz on Netflix Instant viewing -
Miles Davis : Cool Jazz Sound
Duke Ellington : Big Band Feeling
Sarah Vaughn and Other Jazz Divas
Herbie Hancock : Possibilities

Type your fav. artist in . You might be pleasantly surprised . I have some Tom Waits and VU / L. Reed video to watch still .

Since you asked, no its not. Joint possessives only need the apostrophe on the last entry, i.e. in this case it would be 'Jimmy Cliff and Guillermo Bright's Sitting Here in Limbo'.

I finally broke out my old Funk and Wagnalls to improve my syntax . Looking back on some of my old posts is just embarrassing to me . Though it did provide some great home school fodder for my eldest as he cackled at my grammatical failings . I of course get the last laugh with his work load for the day . So kid , that will be War and Peace and The Brothers Karamazov , by tomorrow !

I'm fairly laid back about spelling and grammar in a casual context like the forum but I do think that if you believe you have something worth saying it's worth taking the trouble to say it clearly. After all, what's the point of having a great insight if no one understands what it is you're trying to say?

And good luck with War and Peace and the Brothers K. (Did you ever see the Flying Karamazov Brothers supporting the Grateful Dead?) I'll be dead in the ground long before I read those two.

It is important to me to write properly , or at least knowing the 'rules' as I break them . It's not the rules for rules sake, but the clarity of the writing .
I was kidding , he's not quite ready for those heavyweights . I too think I'll get out dead before having to read War n' Peace . Come to think of it he'll probably have to do that one on his own , if he wishes .

Never saw the Flying K with GD .

I haven't read War and Peace but Anna Karenina is a great read.

Anna K and Brothers B are both great reads, although with Anna K I had to pick up, put down, pick up, put down, etc.

Right now I'm plowing through Don DeLillo's Underworld. Any fans of his here? I've read White Noise and Great Jones Street, but many years ago...

Oh yes! I love Underworld. Now that's a book that takes about a year to read, but worth it. A very very funny book.

Yea, would pick up, read chapter or so, get distracted and put down, and then pick back up. Then set it down for a few months and when I picked it up this time started at beginning and reading right through each night at bedtime. About halfway through. Well worth the effort to come back to it.

With you and Dire around I'd perhaps best not admit to how few of the 'classics' I've actually read, but I'd rank The Three Musketeers and The Woman in White as two of the most solidly entertaining books I've ever made the acquaintance of.

Anna K is not hard to read, it was originally serialized in a popular magazine and it's basically a soap opera, nothing erudite going on there. Well, there are a couple of chapters of ruminations about the means of production and the meaning of life by one rather philosophically inclined character, but most of it is passionate affairs and anguished betrayals and intrigue.

If you are a Jazz nut like me, you will surely love Jazz On A Summers Day...Its a very interesting documentary by Bert Stern on the '58 Newport Jazz festival. Really good and streamable as well..
